Do you struggle with anxiety, depression, and/or a general uncertainty on where to go in life? Have the changes of the last year made you feel isolated and struggling to cope with life pressures? Are past traumas interfering your daily life to the point to where you're ready to take steps to gain relief? Do you feel like you would benefit from having someone in your corner to listen, strategize, and guide you through these difficult times?
I have treated many clients who have met the clinical definition for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic stress disorder unspecified. These cases have ranged from individual discrete traumas to historical and multi-generational traumas utilizing evidence based treatments such as Narrative Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Over the years I have treated many clients suffering from depression using a variety of approaches suited to the individual person. I believe in a humanistic and client centered approach that takes into account external and societal factors in addition to internal cognitions.
Many of the children clients I've treated have met the diagnosis for ADHD and suffered from behavioral problems in home, daycare, and school settings. I've had a lot of success helping kiddos to manage their emotions, learn to "stop and think" before acting impulsively, and learn to self soothe when upset so that they can better participate in group settings.
